"And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world

advanced with rapid steps to the Euphrates, the Danube, the Rhine, and the ocean; and the images of gold,
or silver, or brass, that might serve to represent the nations and their kings, were successively broken by
the iron monarchy of Rome."-"Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire," chap. 38, par. 1, under "General
Observations," at the close of the chapter.
